Media watch site takes a pause

Mediekritik.nu, a media watch site where readers can send in comments on articles, debate and hold journalists responsible for what they write, will for some time be operated on a minimal level and the discussion forums will be closed. jThe site has been up and running for three years and published 600 critical articles, but the individuals behind the site need time to evaluate and propose changes to the site. Due to these changes, Stig-Björn Ljunggren who is an expert in political science, proposes that Sweden needs a special place on the web for rebuttals, where citizens can publish an opposing view of events covered in traditional media. Personally, I feel that many blogs today serve as media watch dogs and the need for a centralized place for rebuttals is very limited. The network effect of the blogosphere probably has greater influence as a media watch dog than any single rebuttal site can have.
